Announcing the launch of AzarGrammar.com

Dear Fellow teachers,

I am delighted to announce the launch of AzarGrammar.com. At last! We've been working to achieve this for a number of years.

My purpose in creating this site has been to provide useful support for teachers. Hopefully, we can pool our experiences, materials and ideas to create a community of teachers worldwide.

The site isn't just for teachers who use Azar textbooks; it's for any teacher using any materials who is interested in any way in the role of grammar in second language instruction.
